Note for Windower users: The last cutscene will most likely freeze. This happens even at the default framerate. If this happens, the Mission will still be flagged as completed, and you can continue to the next Mission after disconnecting and logging in again.

If you wish to watch the cutscene, disconnect from the game and log in without Windower.
You can restart the cutscene from the Goblin Footprint at (K-6/7) by trading it an item or Gil, which will be returned to you.


  • Interact with the Outcropping at (F-10) in Gustav Tunnel for a cutscene.
  • The following fight is trivial at level cap, but if you're at a lower level, prepare to battle:
  • Interacting with the Outcropping again will start a fight against 3 Tenshodo agents named Renfred, Bompupu and Gorattz and consume the Key Item Black book Key Item.
    • Trust Magic can not be used in this fight.
    • You will keep your buffs: Phalanx will negate all damage from this fight except Bompupu's nukes.
  • The 3 agents start off untargetable and cast Utsusemi: Ni a few times, then 4 clones of each will spawn.
    • The clones aren't very strong, having low HP, accuracy, attack and defense, and cast elemental and enfeebling Ninjutsu.
  • At some point (either time elapsed or number of clones defeated), the 3 agents will join the fight, at which time they can be attacked, and must be defeated in order to win the encounter.
    • They can be differentiated from the clones because they have higher HP and will continue to cast Utsusemi as well as other Ninjutsu.
    • Once in the fight, they will still continue to spawn clones as the clones are dispatched.
    • Once an agent is defeated, any of his or her remaining clones will despawn after a couple of seconds.
  • When all 3 agents are down, you will be rewarded a Key Item Cactuar key, which can be redeemed at the Treasure Coffer in Tenshodo Headquarters in Lower Jeuno.
  • Interact with the Outcropping again for a cutscene.
